Understanding the key drivers that affect a decline of soil organic carbon (SOC) stock in agricultural areas is of major concern since leading to a decline in service provision from soils and potentially carbon release into the atmosphere. Despite an increasing attention is given to SOC depletion and degradation processes, SOC dynamics are far from being completely understood because they occur in the long term and are the result of a complex interaction between management and pedo-climatic...

Since climate change involves uncertainty, complexity and massive, rapid disruptions, companies seeking to adapt need to search for specific and non-traditional knowledge. Social learning approaches have emerged as a promising way to address the issue of adaptation to climate change. This paper examines the structuring of a business strategy for adaptation in a Brazilian thermoplastic resin and petrochemical company to exemplify the extent to which internal changes in the organization's...

An integrated approach combining Bayesian Network with GIS was developed for making a probabilistic prediction of sea level rise induced coastal erosion and assessing the implications of adaptation measures. The Bayesian Network integrates extensive qualitative and quantitative information into a single probabilistic model while GIS explicitly deals with spatial data for inputting, storing, analysing and mapping. The integration of the Bayesian Network with GIS using a cell-by-cell comparison...

Extreme drought and precipitation are expected to occur more frequently due to climate change, which may influence the water uptake patterns by vegetation in the rocky mountainous area of northern China. In this work, dual stable isotopes were used to detect the water sources of mixed forest of coniferous and broad-leaved tree species and their response of leaf water potential under differently sized precipitation events (no rain: 0.0 mm; light rain: 9.8 mm; moderate rain: 21.8 mm; large rain:...

It is critical to investigate the effects of competition and climate on forest growth as they are main forces affecting forest dynamics. However, in subtropics of China such a study has never been conducted. Here we conducted a pioneer study to evaluate the effects of competition and climate on growth of Chinese red pine (Pinus massoniana) in mixed forests of subtropical China along a broad latitudinal gradient (23°N∼32°N). Twenty-three plots (20m × 20m) were randomly selected from 11...

We used a novel experimental approach to examine the interactive effects of drought and presence of soil microbes on biomass production and plant traits in a savanna tree species. Seedlings of Bauhinia brachycarpa were grown in sterilized or ‘live’ soil, with or without...

The extent of the effect of China's Loess Plateau on global climate change partially depends on the achievements of the Grain for Green Program (GFGP). This region is prone to drought problems, especially the widespread creation of dried soil layer (DSL), which is intensified by the revegetation from GFGP initiatives. A DSL is the result of soil desiccation in deep soil profiles. The occurrence and expansion of DSLs are strengthened by the high risk of the Loess Plateau to climate change. On...

The 405-kyr cycles in proxy records for the East Asian summer monsoon and global ice volume intensified and became phase-locked to eccentricity forcing at ~ 4.5 Ma. We revised previous forcing mechanism hypothesis for Pliocene intensification of the 405-kyr cycles in paleoclimatic records and proposed that the establishment of salinity difference between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea at ~ 4.5 Ma triggered an ocean-air positive feedback mechanism. This feedback mechanism caused...

Reusing software components without proper analysis is very risky because software components can be used differently from the way that they were developed. This paper describes a new testing approach for reusing software components. With this new approach, it is possible to automatically decide if software components can be reused without testing. In addition, when retesting is required for reusing software, test cases are generated more efficiently using the previous testing history.

Knowledge of changes in the distribution of C 3 and C 4 plants in relation to climate change is the key to predicting the biosphere's response to future climatic warming. There are significant differences in the spatiotemporal evolution of C 4 plant abundance at different latitudes since the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), and the factors responsible remain debated. In this study, we reconstructed the spatiotemporal pattern of C 4 plants in China since the LGM, based on a synthesis of δ 13 C...

The study analyzed the occupational health hazards of fish smoking among fisher-folks in the coastal areas of Ondo State, Nigeria and further proffered strategies for their management and control. Fish smoking combines the effects of drying, heating, and smoking coupled with salting. The pre-treatment involves gutting, splitting and smoking using firewood. Smoking is the oldest, convectional and most common methods used where the heat from the fire dries the fish while chemicals from the smoke...

Bait polychaete worms were obtained from areas around Port Dickson coasts of Negeri Sembilan Darul Khusus in Malaysia. There were four species of bait polychaete species used in this study Perinereis quatrefagesi, Halla parthenopeia, Diopatra neapolitana, and Marphysa mossambica. These polychaete species were subjected to lipid, protein, water, carbohydrate, and ash content analysis. The lipid contents in polychaete were determined using Soxhlet analysis. The protein contents were determined...

The mutual relationship between man and nature brings multiple characters, functions and benefits to the landscape. Landscape services are crucial for the social and economic development and vital activities of human beings. Landscapes produce goods and services in the industry needs as well as that are directly needed by the individual in the cities and in the countryside. In this study, Çankırı, Ilgaz Region landscape services are analysed and defined in multifunctional way which are based...

Root trainers are increasingly being used to avoid root coiling and distortion and lack of wind tolerance after field transplanting, when compared to the conventional polybag planting system. Root tips grew out of root trainer forming an intact root mass and then could be transplanted to the field with high survival rate. While the influence of spatial position on root tips growing out of budded stump root trainer was still unknown at nursery stage. Therefore, the bottoms of root trainer were...
